Things We Saw Today: “Bread Beds” Are a Real Thing That Really Exist

Want to sleep in a cloth-and-stuffing version of pastry? Bread beds in various styles can be purchased at Japanese store Felissimo. Don’t want to sleep in a cloth-and-stuffing version of pastry? Get out of my sight, you heathen! (Laughing Squid)

  • Welp, it’s almost the end of Armpits4August. What, you don’t know what that is? Via The Frisky, it’s a female-oriented version of Movember that encourages ladies to grow out their armpit hair. All funds raised benefit the fight against PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome.
  • Geekosystem tells us about a British man who was woken up by a fox that had crawled into his bed and started to snuggle. Lucky son of a gun. Speaking of Geekosystem, they’re looking for a full-time science writer. Think that person should be you? Head over to the job listing and apply.

Have a geeky girl in your family? Or maybe you are a geeky girl, or a geeky adult petite enough to fit into kid’s clothing? Check out A Mighty Girl, “The world’s largest collection of books, toys and movies for smart, confident, and courageous girls.” If only this T-Rex shirt of theirs came in my size.

Warner Bros. has tapped artist/designer Lauren Moshi for a new line of clothes featuring Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Supergirl, and more. One example is above; for others, head to License! Global. (via DC Women Kicking Ass)

    There’s also these non girly shirts for geek girls

    Or, as we call them in my house – girls. :D

    “‘We have a lot of bruising dudes who can strap on some spandex and it’s
    very believable that they can just plow through 100 people. With women,
    it’s a lot different,’ Bock says.”

    Boy howdy, did I want to smack someone when I read that.

    I’m sorry, what now? Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield…Christian Bale? These are not what I would call “bruising dudes.” It’s not believable that ANYONE would be able to “plow through 100 people,” except maybe Chris Hemsworth. That is some crappy, backwards, I’m-trying-so-hard-to-justify-this logic right there. In fact, MOST of the guys playing superheroes don’t look like “bruising dudes.” But we get that perception because they’re filmed to look tough when they need to be tough. Yeah, you always want to get the right actor for the part, but don’t make it sound like you’re hunting for a needle in the haystack, “Oh, the ever-elusive Lady Who Looks Tough But Still Hot–HOW WILL WE EVER FIND ONE OF THOSE IN HOLLYWOOD?!” As if it’s exponentially harder to find an actress than an actor. Sheesh.

    It actually is harder for them to find a decent actress to fit those parts than an actor.

    They actually LOOK for actors. Actresses, not at all.

    So, I can see why that’d make things difficult.

  • Laura Truxillo

    Right, well, that and there’s a wider…eh, call it “margin of error” for attractiveness of male actors. There’s all kinds of ways a guy can look attractive, and he can be hot at 17 or 40 (or older). Ladyfolks, not so much.

    I dig the Wonder Woman shirt but hopefully they make sizes larger than “stick figure”. I’m pretty runty and that wouldn’t even fit -me-.

    I’ll bet those bread beds keep you nice and toasty.

    Do you know how bad foxes smell? I would not relish being in bed with one.
